Dharriwaa Elders Group was engaged in 2013 to publish 4 half-sized issues of its magazine Yundiboo by the previous Australian Government's RSD program which supplied community education content for insertion in the magazine regarding the RSD for Walgett. The last issue was produced in May 2014, when funding ceased. Previously, the DEG produced a 16 page magazine monthly for 11 years until capacity was reduced in June 2010. DEG hopes the magazine project is supported in the future so that it can be a community employment and training vehicle. Vol 12 Issue 1, Vol 12 Issue 2, Vol 12 Issue 3, Vol 12 Issue 4 can be downloaded here.
